This 3 bedroom condo in Islamorada / Lower Matecumbe was gorgeous. The sliding glass doors look out on a small working and recreational marina, with the Atlantic ocean just a bit beyond. It was fun watching the morning fishermen load their boats with lobster traps and head off early, and to watch them when they returned in the late afternoon. Sport fishermen returned also and we watched them cleaning their daily catch and feeding the flocks of pelicans. And we were lucky enough to see some manatees who came right up to the docks eating sea grass, as well. Each morning we were treated to watching the sun rise over the ocean... there was lots of light in the condo which is what we always crave in rentals.
The rooms in this condo are huge... not only the living and dining room area, but all three bedrooms. Often the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms in rentals are quite tiny but these were enormous. The shower in the master bath was very good and spacious as well.
The swimming pool is large and was usually nearly empty, at least in January when we stayed there. The temperature was perfect and we could sit for hours and enjoy the warmth. Barbecues were provided for grilling in the evenings.
David Jacobson could not have been more accommodating, and was always very responsive as were the onsite managers. We are renting in the same unit next January and look forward to returning!
